You're both right. It was a now you see it now you don't, that's it ah no sort of thing.

The other unconvincing thing was (I had thought of trying azo-compunds) I found a site that gives possible structures from molecular formula called ChemSpider which gave me

HN=N+=NCHCH3CHOHCH3 and variations.

We have a charged molecule. Charged molecules like quaternary amines are quite respectable. They have to be in salts though. And I thought things like this were very unstable, even explosive. Not likely to be in a student excercise.
